Closeouts These beautiful Alico Tahoe hiking boots are true classics. These boots are made of top quality, full-grain leather and are crafted by a small factory of artisans located in the Italian Dolomites.

These boots were exactly what I was looking for. Well constructed, nice leather. Goes on easily.
Note that Alico makes two types of boots like this-- the Back Country line has the larger rubber sole (more waterproof?)-- the Alico has the stiched sole.

I've had these boots for a year and a half now. I wear them every day to work where I walk on concrete, and when I go camping. They have held up great and with proper care should last many more years. The only negatives are the insoles suck and they go through laces because the eyelets are sharp. I recommend highly.

The left and right did not feel like they were the same size even though the boots were labeled the same. I promptly returned them. I didn't care for the lacing either. More speed lacing would be a better option.

I am a perfect size 10 in my other hiking/mountaineering boots. These boots are great except they run a 1/2 too large in the width and length. I returned the size 10 boots I received. Before I could order a size 91/2 they were sold out. Had to order the Summits in 91/2 which will probably be even better if the two are sized the same.

Having been a hiker since the late 60's and worked in a retail backpacking company in the 70's (Sierra Designs), it's nice to see the incredible high level of quality in the Alico Tahoe Hiking boots. I'm certainly I'm old-school as several of my friends have moved on to the lighter-weight, molded bottom sole boots, but after having issues with that style (due to the foam middle sole, they can't be resoled), I was pleasantly surprised to find these, still made with the original Goodyear Welt design. They're sturdy but comfortable, easy to maintain and remind me of the original Vasque and Raichle hiking boots - these boots will probably outlast me...

I was thrilled to find this original Italian styled workhorse of a hiking boot on sierra trading post for a ridiculously low price. These boots are worth every bit of the full price and then some. I have a wide foot and the 11w was just a little too snug in the forefoot area of the right foot. I returned them and ordered the 11.5. Initially they felt somewhat large but after putting on medium weight hiking socks and sole response insoles they fit great. Don't be afraid of a little extra length the lacing and upper of this boot keeps your foot snug in place and the extra room really helps on downhill hiking. These boots are a bit stiff like all leather boots of this style and require a bit of break in period but are very comfy out of the box. The insole provided isn't the best but as many ppl serious about hiking and there feet putting in a good drop in insole or orthotic is the way to go. If you are serious about the trail and want a great boot at an unbelievable price I would jump on this deal.
